I'm a completely new starter - with family trees and Geni.
Through discussions with family and a very chance funeral, I discovered that me and my partner are distantly related. My main idea for joining was so that I could work out and document the link between and hopefully see all on one "page", although it doesn't appear Geni lets you do that as it splits off mine and her tree.
Anyway, I'm keen to add to the tree as much as possible and would be very keen to link into this "big tree" I keep hearing about through different forum messages. I'm very much struggling to get into things though, how to take family members the next step forward etc and there doesn't seem to be much help - or am I looking in the wrong place.
You all seem a friendly lot - where do I start?! What are the important things and what aren't?
